Top 12 Fallen Tech Sites @ OCmodshop

Posted on Thursday, September 13 2012 @ 09:53:29 CEST by


OCModShop takes us on a trip down memory lane, taking a look at 12 popular tech sites that have disappeared over the last couple of years. You can check it out over here.
There have been a lot of tech sites that came about in the late ninteties and early 2000s. These sites emerged shortly after the Internet became a household word, and the technology to run them was fairly primitive compared to today (there were no such things as Content Management Systems… the horror!). Many of the sites started the whole “blog” concept even before the term became popular, and some tech sites helped influence the hardware and gaming industries.

I have fond memories of many different tech websites. For me, they were not just a place to get information or look at the latest case mods; they were a virtual hangout where I felt like a part of a community. This is what started me writing, and eventually led to running a site of my own.
Interestingly, OCModShop almost made the list itself, I remember the site went up for sale in Summer 2005 but fortunately it was relaunched by a new owner.
